From its long, sandy beachfront to the lively streets of Little Havana, there’s a real sense of vibrancy to Miami. Over the course of five days, there are a few incredible highlights that we couldn’t let you leave without experiencing: welcome drinks in the infamous former Versace Mansion; Art Deco sightseeing along Ocean Drive; glass-bottom kayaking in Key Largo; and sailing into the sunset in the bay of Miami.
Urban yet tropical, beautiful yet fun, Miami will inspire you through its contrasts.

Day 01 Welcome drinks in Gianni Versace’s former mansion
Welcome to Miami. The only tropical region of mainland USA, there’s a laid-back atmosphere to this city. Upon arrival, enjoy a welcome drink at the infamous Casa Casuarina, once Gianni Versace’s opulent mansion (and where he was shot in 1997). Enjoy your first drink in Miami in one of its most legendary locations, before diving into the city’s historic Art Deco District on Ocean Drive. You’ll love wandering down Miami Beach’s wide boulevards lined with pastel-hued hotels and palm trees, slowly making your way to a restaurant for dinner.
Day 02 Alligators, graffiti & Little Havana
Your first activity this morning will take you into the Everglades National Park on an airboat tour. Admire this completely unique ecosystem; a vast region of wetland home to swamps, mangroves and alligators (don’t fall in). You’ll then enjoy lunch back in Wynwood, before diving into the Wynwood Art District, whose streets are adorned with impressive graffiti at every corner. A local graffiti artist will teach you how to paint your own artwork so that you can contribute to this rich tapestry of colour. This evening, head into Little Havana, where you’ll find a lively Cuban neighbourhood filled with cafes, bars and Hispanic art galleries. Dinner tonight will be in a traditional Cuban restaurant, where you’ll also enjoy a mojito-making class, immersing you in Miami’s Latin spirit.
Day 03 SUPs & sunset catamaran cruising
Your first activity today will be a SUP session in Biscayne Bay. With its iconic views over the city, think of it as a classic water adventure with an urban twist. You then have a free afternoon ahead of you to do exactly as you please. Can we tempt you with the thought of Miami’s soft white beaches? In the evening, reconvene with your fellow travellers to enjoy a catamaran cruise at sunset (complete with music, snacks and drinks), just as Miami’s skyline lights up at night.
Day 04 Glass-bottom kayaking in Key Largo
Today’s destination: Key Largo, a laid-back tropical island surrounded by the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. You’ll paddle through the island’s lush mangroves in a glass-bottomed kayak, looking out for abundant marine life, such as spotted eagle rays and colorful parrotfish. After an afternoon at sea, you’ll make your way to a delicious dinner. Back in Miami, the night is yours to raise a glass to your adventure and head out into the pulsating city nightlife.
Day 05 Until next time, Miami
After breakfast at the hotel, catch a transfer back to Miami Airport. Interested in short US escapes like this one? Take a look at our New Orleans minibreak.
